Protesters at Syracuse U. Warn of ‘Escalated Action’ if Officials Don’t Acknowledge White Supremacy

Protesters at Syracuse U. Warn of ‘Escalated Action’ if Officials Don’t Acknowledge White Supremacy

“protesters continue their occupation of an administrative building, awaiting concession to their demands”

This situation has been going on for weeks now and it sounds completely out of control.

The College Fix reports:

Syracuse U. protesters promise ‘escalation’ if officials don’t acknowledge ‘white supremacy’

The situation at Syracuse University rolls on as protesters continue their occupation of an administrative building, awaiting concession to their demands.

After a fourth round of negotiations with the loosely knit group #NotAgainSU on Friday, Syracuse officials could not reach middle ground, The Daily Orange reports. The latest sticking point is an acknowledgment that numerous campus “hate” incidents are indicative of “institutional white supremacy” at Syracuse.

Following a “tense” back and forth, protesters warned of “escalated action” if they do not get the acknowledgment.

Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Keith Alford told activists the university would need “until at least the end of the semester” to get a statement out as consultation with faculty and “other SU constituents” are necessary. This didn’t sit well with Jennifer Jackson, a political science professor who teaches the courses “Gender and Politics” and “Black Feminist Politics.”

“The fact that you’re saying it will take you eight additional weeks to write an email that says there are issues on this campus that deal with white supremacy is very distressing,” Jackson said.

Tell them they are welcome to leave on their own.
If they ratchet up their “activism”, suspend them, expel them.
Enough!

escalated action? you mean like the admin expelling you?

(hey, I can dream, can’t I?)

    They know full well that administration lacks the willingness to do anything of the kind. Were I the dean, they’d be told to clear out their dorm rooms and be gone from the campus by 5PM

    If their stuff remained, it would be tossed into a 40 yard rubbish trailer.

    If the students were still present, they’d be busted for trespassing.

I’d take escalated action against the professor–why isn’t she in classes teaching, or researching or doing whatever poli sci professors do these days?

    The best response would be to end all affirmative BS, get rid of all affirmative departments and fire all affirmative staff.

School needs to grow a pair and shut these a-holes down. Suspensions are in line at the very least, along with expulsions if they determine that’s warranted.

If their were such a thing as white supremacy any more, some guys the Dean just happened to know who could handle things like this would snatch them one night, beat the holy living f%ck out of them, then dump them naked in a park in some area of Syracuse that is richly blessed with diversity.

Sounds like a 3-year-old screaming in the grocery store check out line because mommies won’t buy her a candy bar.

How about escalating their asses off school property?

You know what? Forget it. Syracuse can just enjoy the circus they helped design.

Lol….”Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer.” There’s your problem right there. Create Communist-inspired departments and “officers,” then wonder why you’ve attracted Communists to your campus.

If you don’t have the guts to suspend and expel them, then tell the demonstrators that one of the people who has been in closest contact with them has tested positive for coronavirus. Gently suggest that they might want to go to the hospital and get tested. Or maybe that they might want to self-quarantine for two weeks. That should help to diminish their resolve.
